Jury Orders Microsoft to Pay $200 Million in Damages

"The evidence clearly demonstrated that we do not infringe and that the i4i patent is invalid. We believe this award of damages is legally and factually unsupported, so we will ask the court to overturn the verdict."

, shared a Microsoft spokesman on Texas jury's verdict that Microsoft infringed a software patent, ordering the company to pay $200 Million in damages.

Toronto-based company, 141, filed the complaint stating that Microsoft knowingly infringed certain 141 software patents during the development of Microsoft Word and Vista OS.

Just last month, Microsoft was also ordered to pay $388 million in damages for infringing a Uniloc Inc., an anti-piracy company, patent.

Microsoft is currently in the process of appealing for reconsideration on both verdicts.
